  1. Really cool story. Its amazing that nearly 18% of the companies from the competition are still in business. In the 20 years that the competition has been in business, they have averaged over 7.1 companies being launched that are still in business today. In addition, the amount of money they have raised is also incredible. Creating this challenge was a clearly a great decision.
